Beyoncé Knowles reportedly splashed out £89,000 on her sister’s honeymoon.
Things have been tricky between Beyoncé, 33, and Solange, 28, ever since Solange was caught on camera attacking her sibling’s husband Jay Z in an elevator earlier this year. The family quickly released a statement insisting the incident had been put behind them, although they never stated what caused it.
Despite their differences, Beyoncé was on hand to celebrate Solange’s wedding to Alan Ferguson, 51, in New Orleans last month. And to show how much her sister means to her, the star is also said to have stumped up £89,000 for her honeymoon.
The happy couple travelled to Trancoso in Brazil after their nuptials, posting pictures of their holiday on Instagram. They apparently stayed at an exclusive villa at the UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa, which includes a meditation area and will set you back £700 a night.
“Beyoncé also gifted Solange private first-class travel, a chartered boat tour and personally-catered meals,” a source told British magazine Heat. “It was Bey’s way of saying, ‘I’m sorry,’ after all the bad blood between Jay and Solange. And, of course, she’s thrilled that her sister got the wedding and man of her dreams. She wants the whole family to move on to happier times.”
It’s not the first time Beyoncé has given a present involving food. Last month it was reported that she’d lavished her former Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland with a $250,000 private chef to celebrate the arrival of Kelly’s first child, son Titan, with her husband Tim Witherspoon.
Beyoncé also arranged for a hand-painted cot to be created for Titan. It boasts his name in gold and came with a $50,000 price tag. That would be enough for most people, but the superstar singer also picked out a suit and leather jacket by Versace for $260 and Louis Vuitton diaper bag worth $2,200.
